So very THANKFUL for each of you!

Blocks 1 and 5:  We worked on the Rise of Nazism newsletter.  We will have one more day of class tech time when we get back from break!

Blocks 2,3, and 4:  You completed the propaganda article and questions.  If completed early, you were able to do a Thanksgiving and Georgia webquest!

WEBQUEST DIRECTIONS:

For each of the strands of Social Studies listed on the graphic organizer-

Choose a different food to complete a topic (ex. turkey-history) and describe its connection to that topic.  Maybe you compare two states and the amount of turkey’s they raise and how much money it contributes to the state economy of each.  (economics)

Culture should be about YOUR Thanksgiving tradition.

Back to Germany

We have gone back to Germany to see what has been happening while we were in Russia!

Block 1 and 5:  Rise of Nazism webquest Link 1 and Link 2.  We will continue the activity Wednesday and Thursday.

Block 2, 3, and 4:  Students watched a BrainPop about Adolf Hitler and read a summary of the Rise of nazism.  As groups finished, they began a web quest.  Write a 5-7 word summary for each of the pages you read.  Use your own paper for that.

Propaganda linkLook at 5 of the posters located on the link (write down a list of the ones you look at).  Choose ONE to answer the questions (write down the name):

  1. What is the overall message behind the poster?
  2. How did the Nazis appeal upon the emotions of the viewer? The logic and intelligence of the viewer?
  3. How did the poster portray (show) Nazis? German citizens? Jewish individuals? NOTE:  All three may not be in the poster you pick

Our Unit 2 test will be on Dec. 6th.  Sounds far away doesn’t it?!?!  Don’t let that fool you!  Never too soon to start reviewing!  Topics so far:  Russian Revolution, Treaty of Versailles, and now, the Rise of Nazism.

Rainy Daze and Monday!

All classes participated in a Mock Election as we prepare for our stop in Germany Post-WWI tomorrow.  Our winner will be introduced tomorrow!

All classes took a Discovery Ticket today over the Russian Revolution as we prepare to leave the now Soviet Union….we will return though!

Discovery Ticket grades are in Synergy.  You may have heard me mention friends that no homework is a perfect time to spend 10-15 minutes reviewing material.  Look over notes, organize materials, talk about the lessons with a friend or parent.

Warm-Up #13 will be due on Friday!
